Max Payne 3 Multiplayer Double XP Weekend Starts with Live Streaming Event this Friday, July 6th, Across All Platforms

Posted on July 4 2012, 12:00pm | Author: R* K | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

Update: Today's triple-platform Max Payne 3 Social Club Multiplayer Event has ended. Thanks to everyone that joined us - enjoy the Double XP in Max Payne 3 Multiplayer all weekend!

Whether you’re working your way towards a new Item for your Loadout or Level 50 Legendary status, play any Max Payne 3 multiplayer mode this coming weekend and you’ll get Double XP for your efforts across Xbox LIVE, PlayStation Network and PC, from Friday night thru 'till Sunday night.

That means twice the reward for every kill scored, bag dropped, Vendetta settled and more. Better still, play with fellow members of your Crew at your side and any Crew bonuses will also be doubled – soon you’ll be rising through the ranks like Serrano himself.

We’re kicking off this Double XP weekend in grand style with a live-streaming official Social Club multiplayer event on Friday July 6th from 4-7pm EST / 9pm-midnight BST, and we’ll be playing all modes including those in the Local Justice DLC pack on consoles.

To join us, simply log on to Max Payne 3 multiplayer on your platform of choice and select the ‘Social Club Multiplayer Event’ option from the in-game Playlists menu, and look out for one of our official Rockstar players, marked with a special visible in-game dog tag logo:

  • MaxPayneDev1 (PC)
  • MaxPayneDev2 (PSN)
  • MaxPayneDev3 (Xbox LIVE)
  • MaxPayneDev4 (Multiplatform)

*MaxPayneDev5 will be playing on PC between 2-4pm EST / 7-9pm BST and that will be streamed live on our Twitch page

Be sure to join us at the Social Club multiplayer events page for the dual live stream, special event leaderboards and Rockstar hosted live chat, as well as our Sweepstakes where you can enter your details at any time during the day to be in with a chance of winning a Deluxe Prize Pack, including a Max Payne statue, a Hawaiian Shirt just like the one Max wears in the game, a bullet keychain and assorted stickers. Additionally, ten runners-up will receive a t-shirt, keychain and stickers.

Also make sure you're following us on our Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Steam (for PC) pages to get word of additional impromptu multiplayer sessions all summer long and beyond...

      Hey Rockstar thanks for the double xp! I hope this happens again at least once or twice a month. :D I have a question about the dlc. When you have the dlc do you have a private server which allows you to play only with players whom have the dlc? I notice that the dlc maps appears also on the players who have no dlc maps. This means that people who have dlc maps and votes for the dlc map will have less players to play with because they play with people who doesn't have the dlc map. Also, people that doesn't have the dlc map always gets kicked when a dlc map is voted for play and this is quite a hassle when playing.

      Hey Rockstar,

      I just wanted to stop by and thank you for such a wonderful weekend. Thanks to your double XP, I played nothing but Max Payne 3 all weekend and reached Rank 50 from Rank 36! Getting to Rank 50 was my final achievement and I now have the full 1125/1125 gamerscore! This is one of my proudest accompkishments and I'm very thankful to you guys.

      The best part is; it has given me the motivation to go back to Red Dead Redemption and finish off the achievements on that. Am I correct that Rank 50 doesn't take as long as Max Payne 3?

      Hopefully you will read this as I have a quick question; with the DLC, are you planning on going for 1750G or less? I would email you but, I can't log into Hotmail from my handheld as it doesn't load the page correctly.

      The Azzholez buried a few and gained some levels. Met some really good players and had a blast blasting you all. Thanks for the fun.

        Great Double XP weekend! Please do it again. Although it seemed like last night (9PM CST) there was no more 2X XP. Thanks R*!

            @LURCH87 Nice work - you'll be hitting Legend in no time at that rate, and we'll have plenty more opportunities to play with our devs throughout the summer

          Thanks for the double XP r*. I went from level 34 to 45 our something like that. I really wished I could've played more but well, you know how it is.

            When is the next Double XP Weekend? It was a blast and the server population shot up, which was a much needed injection. Hope to see another Double XP Weekend soon, or even better Quadruple XP Weekend that would benefit the new players who bought the game along with recent DLC.

              This double XP weekend event was fail, sometimes you get double XP, sometimes you don't, no rhyme or reason, just another poorly implemented feature. Some people have gotten double XP the whole weekend with no problems. All it has done is give some players an unfair advantage over others. Thanks Rockstar, what this game really needed was more imbalance.

                  Yea double xp worked for me today, and I made it from level 28 to 33 (close to 34). That was nice ;d

                    Thx R*, made it to level 34. Awesome Multiplayer-Action.

                    One thing: would be nice to see the exact weapon, with which you get killed. Like in textform.
                    • JustoDaDonon July 9 2012, 2:30amReplyFlag
                      @Lizardking They do show the weapon in text form. After you respawn look to the top left and you see who killed you and with what weapon. Be for warned, expect to see mini 30 up there alot.

                        Can't even complete a single match today, because this bug-ridden bullsh*t continues to boot players out.

                          Does anyone know why some of us can't get double XP?

                          Hey R* Do you get double xp only in the social club playlist or any playlist? Thanks
